Annealing My Eagle Hairpin Spokes

Jim Spillane thought it was crucial that I heat treat my hairpin spokes since they would be skipping less spokes (6) than what they were designed to skip (14). The task: use my MAPP gas torch  to heat up all 36 elbows (for the 72 spokes) to red hot. And then let them cool naturally.

I hope to start building the wheel this week!!
